The LEGO Movie producers, Phil Lord and Chris Miller, want to pay tribute to every cinematic Batman thus far, in the spin-off film, The LEGO Batman Movie. Every cinematic Batman, from Adam West to Christian Bale, will be honored in some way. While Lord and Miller are not heavily involved in The LEGO Batman Movie production, they are being brought on by Warner Bros. for advisement. While it is unclear whether Ben Affleck’s upcoming portrayal and the various animated versions of Batman will be considered, it is a good possibility. According to Miller,
“Rest assured that every era of Batman filmmaking will be acknowledged. There have been so many interpretations of Batman and there is so much to play with there. There are 40 versions of his origin story alone.”
Fans will be excited to learn that Will Arnett will reprise his role as the Lego Dark Knight for the LEGO Batman Movie. The movie is set to come to theaters on February 10th, 2017.
